Blu-ray Combo Pack ($29.94)

The movie that launched the idea of the summer box-office “blockbuster” in 1975 when it brought throngs into theaters—and sent them home petrified to go anywhere near the water—makes its long-awaited Blu-ray debut with a boatload of bonus features. Even if you’ve seen the movie on TV countless times, this meticulously restored, hi-definition version (brighter, crisper and scarily sharper than ever before) is worth reeling in for the extras alone, which include an all-new two-hour documentary with never-before-seen footage and interviews with cast and crew, including director Steven Spielberg and actors Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfess; another full-length documentary on the making of the movie; an in-depth look at the process by which the film was repaired and cleaned up, frame by frame; deleted scenes and outtakes; and a look inside the “Jaws” archives of posters, production photos and storyboards that later became memorable scenes.
